Azealia Banks Apologizes to Fans, Promises to Stop Using Homophobic Slur


Cassandra Hannagan/Getty ImagesAzealia Banks is apparently ready to turn over a new leaf. The Harlem rapper has written an open letter to fans, apologizing for letting them down and promising to no longer use the homophobic slur, “f*****”.

In the lengthy Facebook post, Banks admits her words have hurt people and she’s been unfair in her treatment of those who’ve supported her during her career highs and lows.

Banks writes, “I love to please and inspire others with my music and art the most, More than i love anything in the world. To lose out on a chance to make people feel good and smile and be happy would be the dumbest thing i could do in this lifetime. To end this note i want to SINCERELY apologize to my fans for having let so many of you down over the years.”

Azealia Banks’ apology comes one month after her online battle with One Direction‘s Zayn Malik and Skai Jackson, where she accused the U.K. singer of stealing her style, and referred to Jackson as a “thot in training”.
